Hey, one advantage that this Nylea has as Commander is she's mana sink to get creatures into your hand because if you don't reveal a creature you can put that card into graveyard and look again. With infinite green mana you can find and cast all the creatures in your deck or just find a specific one, cast it and repeat on your turn. With Yeva, Nature's Herald you can cast creatures at instant speed and you can activate Nylea at instant speed.

This interaction is a combo to make infinite green mana. There needs to be minimum four green devotion for Karametra's Acolyte. Mystery Booster version of Umbral Mantle is $5 at TCGPlayer. Sword of the Paruns is slower than Mantle, because have to pay mana to equip it, but that's why it's less than $2. As long as Acolyte is equipped and can tap then you can make infinite green mana at instant speed which means you can do the combo on your last opponent's turn.

  1. Assemble the infinite mana combo.
  2. Using infinite mana activate Nylea until you get Yeva, Nature's Herald into your hand and end your turn.
  3. On last opponent's turn make infinite mana combo again.
  4. Flash in Yeva then activate Nylea to find and put all creatures into your hand.
  5. Cast all your creatures since they have flash from Yeva.
  6. On your next turn attack with all your creatures and Nylea.

Nylea puts cards that aren't creatures into your graveyard and you can advantage of this with green recursion. With infinite green mana Skullwinder + Temur Sabertooth can recur all cards in your graveyard that Nylea put there. Eternal Witness is a better Skullwinder, but more expensive price. Sabertooth can also give you infinite ETB triggers of a creature such as Acidic Slime to destroy all your opponents lands which can be game winning.

If you're interested in these suggestions I offer more advice to make cuts.

Good luck with your deck.

Elemental Bond for additional draw engine.

Also consider Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, Basalt Monolith, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Umbral Mantle for other infinite mana generators.

Herald of Secret Streams can help enable your victory by making your X/X creatures unblockable.

Freed from the Real and Pemmin's Aura both go infinite with Zaxara.

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds goes infinite with Freed from the Real/Pemmin's as well as with Umbral Mantle. Gyre Sage can easily be made to combo with the mantle as well.

Infinite mana enables easy wincons with this commander.

I can give more feedback but I want to make sure it's in line with your vision for your deck.

My own take on this commander is The Hydra X

Full and extensive write-up for the last update is coming before the end of the week, but the changes that are for sure coming and already in the list are:

As of now, our girl has a 35% winrate on a sample size of 17 games that are being recorded thanks our wonderful discord community and of course, many, MANY thanks to SynergyBuild.

Liking the list! Trying to build a cEDH deck of Emiel since his first ability is such a great infinite mana dump. Might recommend running an Umbral Mantle combo with Priest of Titania out (with 4+ other elves on the field) or Karametra's Acolyte with ample devotion. Basically any dork that taps for 4+ mana plus the mantle is infinite mana, bounce the Acidic Slime as much as I want to destroy all their artifacts, enchantments, and lands!Or Infinite Tokens with Armada Wurm or Thragtusk! The possibilities! Also, great include on the Incubation Druid, didn't realize that interaction at first.

Here's a couple of my classic mono green stompy suggestions

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

Nyx Lotus

WHAT THE GUY ABOVE ME SAID

Karametra's Acolyte (combos with Umbral Mantle)

Llanowar Tribe (combos with umbral mantle for huge llanowar tribe but not infinite mana)

Steelbane Hydra

Walking Ballista

Hangarback Walker

Shamanic Revelation

Omnath, Locus of Mana

in a deck like this it also may be worth it to invest in some protection for selvala, as well as getting haste on her to use that ability ASAP

Lightning Greaves

Swiftfoot Boots

precociousapprentice: All valid points. Removing Umbral Mantle was certainly something I was against.... and since no changes have been absolutely final, I will be looking to keep it in. However, as it stands, it is the only sorc speed wincon which could lock us out of wins if it is all that Genesis Hydra flips. That and it gets hit by Collector Ouphe which is annoying.

Root Maze'still doesn't affect our game plan adversely. Only maybe shutting out Chord of Calling lines on storm turn, but the lands coming in tapped doesn't mean much, since nothing we cast can be immediately tapped for mana anyways.

Multiple dorks are being looked, I should be streaming and testing soon, so I will make sure to point out what works and what doesn't. I don't like Llanowar Tribe because it's fixed on three... for that I for sure should run Elvish Archdruid.
